Whether it is Corpse Bride, The Night Before Christmas or Edward Scissorhands, Tim Burton's imagination of a character is odd, quirky, and most importantly, it defies expectation of a rational human being.
But, have you ever wondered what our favorite superheroes would look like if Tim Burton imagined them? If not, then don't worry, 'cause Russian illustrator and animation artist, Andrew Tarusov, has thought about it.
The illustrations bring out Andrew's creativity mixed with Tim Burton's thought process of imagining a character together. As a fan of superheroes, these illustrations made me smile and think about them from a different perspective.
I hope you enjoy them.
The 'Goddess of Love and War' depicted in a costume whose upper part resembles somewhat like cinnamon rolls. Funny, but fascinating at the same time.
A terrified Steve Rogers trying to protect the world with his shield (that's now not with him according to the Marvel Cinematic Universe).
The strongest character of DC Comics nervously holding his love interest, Lois Lane. The shyness on the face of Man of Steel is simply adorable.
Powerful is all I can say about this epic depiction of Wolverine. This superhero has been living his life with several wounds and the knives on the back represent them.
The web of Spider-Man that has his love Gwen Stacy in it.
The Asgardian and God of Thunder holding his Mjolnir that's looking more like an axe. Well jokes apart, but I loved the heels that the Norse deity is wearing.
This is the truth of Dr Bruce Banner and Hulk's relationship. There's a scientist, Bruce Banner who doesn't want Hulk but have no option other than living with him. This illustration depicts the emotional side of Hulk which many probably aren't aware of.
Remember the scene from Deadpool where Wade Wilson is shot and the bullet makes a hole in his body? This one looks similar and that's the truth of this character.
This Tim Burton style Iron Man look would probably be fine for the first movie because the suit is upgraded by Tony again and again.
Whether you believe it or not, the world would not have seen the Caped Crusader if his parents were not killed. This illustration by Andrew remains my favorite, what's yours? Comment in the section below.
